With the New Year just beginning, it’s the perfect time to get out and about and shake off those Christmas cobwebs!
Parents are being encouraged to sign themselves, and their children, up to attend a number of Park Life Saturday clubs running in Belfast’s parks this January. Councillor Matt Garrett, Chairperson of Belfast City Council’s People and Communities committee said: “Getting outside and away from computer screens is so beneficial for children and these Park Life events are a fantastic way for kids to learn about their environment, get some exercise and fresh air in our beautiful parks and make new friends. They’ve been hugely popular in the past, so I’d recommend booking early!”
Upcoming free events taking place in parks across the city in January include:
Discover what birds are in your park and help them through the cold winter months by making feeders with a special ingredient!
